In the case of financial liberalisation in countries that practised financial repression with negative real interest rates, the beneficial effect of financial expansion exceeded the detrimental effect of banking crisis; however, in the case of financial liberalisation in economies practising financial restraint policies that kept minimal real interest rates, the authors could not identify a large financial expansion effect that compensated for the negative impact of banking crisis.
